An annual summer cycling adventure currently held in both Ontario and Alberta. Tour for Kids’ objective is to raise sustainable funding for children’s cancer camps and family support programs. Riders cycle near major cancer camps in the province traveling 100 to 200 kms per day in 2 to 4-day events. Tour for Kids is now in its sixth year in Ontario, and its third year in Alberta and has raised over $3.5 million for local camps with another $1 million expected in 2009. Tour for Kids will be expanding to other provinces across Canada in the future. Visit the Tour for Kids website for more information.

Started in 2002, the RIDE FOR KAREN is a yearly cycling event that is held as a tribute to the life and legacy of Karen Tobias and to raise money for charities that help people living with cancer, and those who care for them. In the last eight years the Ride for Karen has raised over $1,185,000, which was used to help build and furnish new cancer care facilities, provide much needed resources for cancer support centres and send kids with cancer to camp. As a cancer patient, Karen knew first hand that hospitals were not a very positive environment in which to spend a lot of time. Karen wanted to make a difference and was dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients with one goal in mind - Improving Hope - which she felt was a critical component of cancer care. We as a family have created the Ride for Karen to continue her work in an effort to harness the positive power of hope. All the monies raised from the 2010 Ride for Karen will be used to send kids with cancer to camp. This year's ride will feature four events, a 160km course for advanced riders, a 100km course for intermediate riders, a 25km course for recreational cyclists, and a Kids Fun Ride for children 2-12 years old.
